arm and say get out of there. you don't need to be in there with him. >> right. >> tell me about this proactive thought process. >> i use pig. if someone is pushing drinks or trying to get you alone. i offer recovery skills if something happens. >> when it comes to getting yourself out of a tricky situation, it isn't that the potential attacker isn't hearing your words. he is overriding them. i don't want another drink. it will be great. try this one. this overriding when a woman says i think i've had enough. >> oh, yeah. they ignore your no. that is one of the early signs that you're with somebody who isn't respecting you as a person. >> uh-huh. >> and you need to leave. and so we go through tiny little examples and phrases. there's lots of words that we
9:47 am
can use. because i was from a psi silent generation. i have compassion for my mother and the women older than her. we didn't talk about these things. now we're being forced to and we need to to reduce the harm to give girls skills to protect themselves and their friends and boys and educators so we do a better job at talking about the really awkward awkward subjects. >> you mentioned, you know, your generation, even today if a young woman is intoxicated at the time of a rape or assault, many people think she shouldn't have had all of that to drink. the victim is still getting some of the blame. >> a lost the blame. i want to change that. at the end of the day the person who is morally and legally responsible for the assault is the person who assaults. there are things -- it's a little bit like if you think about a surgeon learning to wash their hands and sterilize
9:48 am
equipment before going into surgery. they didn't used to. if you wash your hands, you reduce the risk of infection. we can teach girls thing to reduce their risk. >> you want girls to be designated drivers and defenders. i'm looking out for my girlfriend and she is doing the same thing for me. >> right. >> let's go back to a topic that we have been covering a lot. the netflix series "13 reasons why." the woman is sexually attacked by someone she has a crush on. many think that rape or sexual violence can only happen by the stranger in the bushes. that isn't the case. >> it wasn't the case for her or me. statistically, 93% of sexual assaults for juveniles happen by somebody they know. we need to change the conversation and understand that most sexual assaults start with a kiss. and then the person goes farther than what you want. so what i do is i offer tools and words of how to say i'm comfortable kissing you. i don't want to do anything else. or i don't even want to kiss

you. i need to go home now. >> and you encourage role play, saying the words puts them in your brain so you can bring them out in a time of need. >> i role play with my girls and my daughter before they went to college. they said this isn't going to happen. i said yes, it will. they came back from college and they said everything that you said was going to happen and more. when they graduated from college, they came to me and said you need to write a book. what you taught us other people need to know. and they need to learn these skills of negotiating these very complex social interactions in a way that keeps them safe and keeps their friends safe. >> this book could be life saving. someone who has been through sexual violence, their thoughts or actions towards suicide increase. >> by 50 percent. a girl who is sexually assaulted are 50% likely to try to kill themselves. i had a dear friend kill herself.
9:50 am
i wrote a book that may have changed my life that i needed and maybe may have changed herself. >> this is a book for all girls. >> yes. >> thank you for joining me. the book is get savvy. letters to a teenage girl about sex and love. >> and you can find it on amazon. >> i read this in a weekend. thank you for joining us. we will be right back. >> so important. >> thank you.
